Testing the Waters: Marine Sponges as Bioindicators of Estuarine Health in Coastal Oregon compares the abundance and diversity of sponges and their associated microbial communities in a heavier vs. lighter impacted estuary in coastal Oregon. As part of this sponge indicator project, the researchers are conducting video transects of field sites to quantify relative abundance and diversity of benthic (i.e. bottom-dwelling) organisms. These videos are taken by SCUBA divers using a submersible camera and represent a view of the bottom at these sites.
